If Obama's actions did precipitate the return of Jesus Christ I am sure Republicans would still attack him for causing Christ's return.

I suppose that could have been worded better, haha. It should have said Rancor gives concrete examples of abject failure when there is an absense of rational thought.

Sorry for some of the cut and past, but others can often explain things much more eloquently than me.

“Intelligent men do not decide any subject until they have carefully examined both or all sides of it. Fools, cowards, and those too lazy to think, accept blindly, without examination, dogmas and doctrines imposed upon them in childhood by their parents, priests, and teachers, when their minds were immature and they could not reason.” ? James Hervey Johnson

When you apply that thought process, enhanced by our amazing understanding of science, natural laws, and overwhelming evidence of evolution, the god claim quickly is dismissed as the fantasy of people from a less sophisticated time. Think about why we don't believe in Viking, Roman, or Greek gods, anymore. They've all had "inspired" books written about them. Generations believed in them until they wised up. Think about why we don't believe in unicorns, pixie fairies, or the sun god. Rational thought seeks the truth, not just what feels good or gives us imaginary comfort.

Rational thinking refers to logic and reasoning being involved in the thought process. It refers to providing reasons and rational behind thoughts or ideas. It adds an element of calculation and planning to a stream of thoughts, rather than basing them on emotion or personal opinion. It is a kind of objective process of thinking and an analytic approach to any problem. Rational thinking is based on reasons and facts and is hence much more calculating and realistic. It's a process of thought that doesn't accept contradition. All people are capable of thinking rationally, but people will tend to cloud this ability because of emotions, prejudices, or previous indoctrination. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's character of Sherlock Holmes demonstrates the concept of rational thinking in a clear way. His logic is always based on facts rather than preconceived notions.

Says the person who believes in zombie jesus, a pregnant girl who didn't have sex, and a magical all knowing being that lets kids starve but helped you find your car keys at just the right time.

Stonewall, better go back and read your own paragraph. Yes, I did say "It is her body, not yours. It is no one's place to tell her what to do with her body..." I did not say "BrookP enthusiastically supports PROSTITUTION and the use of ******, METHAMPHETAMINE, COCAINE, MARIJUANA, etc..." Those were your words, and they were obviously wrong. There is a great deal of difference between "a right" and "supporting something." And, kudos on keeping your body clean and mind in control! I do drink a little wine on occasion, but I've never tried any of the other stuff.

Brook, FYI, I've never smoked, never drank alcohol, never even tried ANY illegal drugs (including cannabis). My mind is the one thing in this world over which I have any control. I would NEVER willingly do anything to give up that control. Have a nice day, sis.

Oh, and stonewall, thanks for once again trying to put your words into my mouth. So, before you get your panties all in a roar, I do believe that all the things that you mentioned are dumb to do to your body. People smoke tobacco and drink alcohol. Should we ban those, too? Did you ever smoke or drink? Regardless, while they may create a medical condition, they are not a medical condition. Pregnancy is a medical condition of the body, and as such, is under the control of the owner of that body. A woman's or a man's medical condition is none of your business.

Like I said, stonewall. It's her body, not yours. If you get to tell her what to do with her body, then she gets to tell you what to do with yours.

Kelly14, thanks, I do have the right to believe as I do, as do you. I also have the right to respond to these articles, as do you. I also have the right to promote rational thinking and scientific awareness, as do you, or belief without evidence if that is your pleasure. Yes, I have read the bible, which is more than most Christians can say. If they had, and analyzed it in its entirety as to how it interrelates to itself, if they have an ounce of critical thinking in them they would quickly notice the inconsistencies, absurdities, and lack of rational thought. See, I care that the world around me operates in a rational manner.

BrookP, what if that unborn human happens to be a female? Doesn't she have the RIGHT to choose what to do with HER body, including to survive, live, and NOT be murdered?

So, BrookP enthusiastically supports PROSTITUTION and the use of ******, METHAMPHETAMINE, COCAINE, MARIJUANA, etc., or to commit SUICIDE by any woman who chooses to do so. BrookP's words: "It is her body, not yours. It is no one's place to tell her what to do with her body..." So sad. I wonder if she equally supports a man's right to do the same. ???

Why is anyone caring what Brooke believes or doesn't believe? She's free to have her own convictions. I for one, could care less about her ramblings. Let her go on to spend her days reading the bible and trying to disprove every word and meaning in it. I for one, prefer to spend my days enjoying this life while I have it, rather than sitting in a corner reading the bible and then trying to prove to everyone on here there is no God. I believe in God. Always have. Always will. If she doesn't, good for her. I could really care less. I'm only wasting my time writing this because I'm tired of reading her stupid rants.

Stonewall you say: "Backwoods and other believers, I'll see you on the other side. We WILL know each other. Non-believers, I am so sorry that you turn your backs and will be lost." - -- How can I turn my back on something that I don't even know exists? It's not like there 100% undeniable proof that he is there and I am defiantly shunning his existence.

Rancor, thanks for the support! I chuckled at your "carry on" comment. But, I tell you, it's tiring trying to convince people to think rationally and to promote an awareness of reality. Whew!!

Brooke sums it up with this: ---"What's even worse is that this very being of yours communicates and demonstrates so pitifully poor that there are around 200 active religions and a thousand christian denominations instead of one clear understanding by all 7 billion humans. So, he gives people the ability of rational thought and then sets up these people to fail his test of blind faith so he can torture them. My gosh, man, can't you see the absurdity in it all?"

As for abortion, I will restate what I have said many times. The woman is a human being that is already living. It is her body, not yours. It is no one's place to tell her what to do with her body or when to reproduce. Otherwise, it is fair game to command you to quit "spilling your seed" without the intent of reproducing. Think of all those "kids" for whom you have denied an existence.
